Lemon and feta are a wonderful flavor combo. Make sure to add the cheese to the potatoes while they're warm to give them a little touch of creaminess. Oregano, garlic powder and salt make an excellent rub for the flank steak. This simple rub will lead to a more flavorful steak. We let the steak rest outside the refrigerator before cooking to ensure that the meat cooks evenly. Cooking flank steak straight from the refrigerator to the oven could lead to a well-cooked outside and an undercooked center. Serve this tasty dish with a Greek salad.


Cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Dried oregano

2 tsp

Garlic powder

1 tsp

Table salt

1½ tsp, divided

Uncooked lean and trimmed beef flank steak

1 pound(s)

Uncooked potato(es)

2 large, baking variety, peeled, cut into 3/4-inch chunks


¾ cup(s), divided

Olive oil

3 tsp, divided

Fresh lemon juice

3 Tbsp

Crumbled feta cheese

¼ cup(s)


  1. Place oven rack in center of oven. Preheat oven to 425F. Coat a large rectangular baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine oregano, garlic powder and 1 tsp salt; rub over both sides of steak. Let steak rest at room temperature while you prepare potatoes.
  3. In prepared baking dish, place potatoes, 1/2 c water, 2 tsp oil, remaining 1/2 tsp salt and lemon juice; stir to combine and bake for 20 minutes. Remove dish from oven and stir (add up to 1/4 cup additional water if pan looks dry); reduce heat to 400F and continue cooking until potatoes are browned and liquid has reduced to a light sauce, another 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle with feta; toss gently.
  4. While potatoes cook, heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat. When quite hot, rub remaining 1 tsp oil onto both sides of steak and add steak to pan. Cook, without touching steak, 5 minutes. Flip; cook another 5 minutes for medium-rare, or longer until desired degree of doneness. Let steak rest for 5-10 minutes, then slice thinly against grain before serving with potatoes.
  5. Serving size: 3 oz steak and 1 cup potatoes
